Schoharie Creek

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

This time of year as the hatches become less reliable terrestrials become a much more important part of the trout's diet. There are still a few aquatic insects hatching so they can not be ignored. This is the perfect time to fish with a Hopper Dropper rig. Tie a small bead head fly about a foot behind either a large Stimulator fly or a Dave's Hopper and float it through the shady, undercut, banks. Pay close attention to the top as it drifts downstream. Any hesitation means set the hook.

Seven-day forecast 

After a little much needed rain the day time temperatures this week will start off a bit above normal. However the end of the week will cool down nicely with the chance of rain. This should put the fall spawning Browns more in the mood.
